Good Morning, Lugano Pirate,
Good news re Swiss. WE fly them to PEK/PVG/NRT, so perhaps we shall see the 777 on those routes later in 2016! Their fare re-structure is also good, and there are bargain P/Z/D fares available on these routes! I have obtained one from DUB-NRT for lesss than Euros 1,000!!
Enjoy your B747-800 flt later this year!
